repeals, and the repeal for those who don't know was signed by bill clinton as president. helping to deregulate. what did we have? the taxes on the rich were gone ridge of, taxes on corporations were reduced, regulations on business were gone ridge of. what is it we saw? we saw that by not changing the organization of capitalist enterprise, we left in place people with the incentives and the resources to undo everything that had been achieved in the great depression. we learned a powerful lesson. it is like winning a war but leaving the enemy with other armaments. they might use their weapons to try again. if you leave in place a corporate capitalist structure, a small group of major shareholders will own the shares in their hands. d. a. therefore select the board of directors and remember what a board of directors does in every corporation, it decides what to produce, how to produce, where to produce and what to do with the profits. for americans this struck a moral political issue. we are in a country which claims it is committed to democracy. we say that about our political act
